Controversial media personality Andrew Kibe has quit the Radio Africa group owned Kiss FM.
“I gave my notice three months ago because I was being censored on the content I could put out on national radio,” he stated.
Kibe who is known for his hard-hitting sentiments said he had a great run at the station and would now focus on his brand on digital platforms.
“On social media, I can put out whatever I want without limitations, things I couldn’t say on the radio,” he noted stating that digital was the next frontier in content creation. He further expressed his gratitude for working alongside his co-host Kamene Goro – whom he had worked with at NRG Radio.
“I am glad to have worked with Kamene and I hope she will join me in the digital space as well,” he conveyed. A Geopoll rating released last weak placed Kamene and Kibe breakfast show 6th overall on the most listened to morning shows with an audience of 716,000 listeners in May 2020.
They were second most popular English show after Classic FM’s Maina and King’ang’i. The duo took over the Morning Kiss segment in September 2019 after leaving NRG earlier in the year.
Kibe at the time promised to have an edgy show which would explore real conversations
Word on the street is that Comedian Felix Odiwuor, aka Jalang’o will be taking over from Kibe
Kibe quit just three days after Jalang’o revealed that he will be heading back to where he started out as a radio presenter at Radio Africa Group.
“But I want to say, I might end up on Waiyaki way, on Waiyaki Way there are so many radios. But I had an amazing meeting with my friend, my boss, the first person who ever gave me the first-ever radio contract, Mr Patrick Quarcoo,” said Jalang’o.
“We had a long discussion, so takeaway NRG radio but I think I might end up back at where it all began, Radio Africa. Which radio I still don’t know, could it be Kiss 100, Classic FM or Jambo.”
